Scott makes a good point, although shipping costs to Hawaii might be a consideration?

Otherwise, there are a lot of good Boost/Buffer pedals, for a lot less money? FWIW, any Boss pedal will work as a Buffer, to start with.

It seems like the main advantage of the Epoch is the dual Outs. You could get a new MXR Micro Amp (very good Boost/Buffer pedal), and a Splitter box, and have around $160 left over.

You might also find the Fulltone Supa-Trem2 Stereo Tremolo / Auto-Panner to be of great interest, surfergirl. (Currently $220.15 brand-new.)

It's an all-analog, true stereo In and Out tremolo and panner and buffer with up to 15db of powerful boost, and the latest version runs off of an 18v power-supply (included). It can be used as a buffer, booster, and two-way splitter with or without the tremolo effect engaged. Lots of options!

Fulltone pedals are top-quality, extremely solidly built all-analog pedals with very low noise and very musical, warm tones. I have a Fulltone Clyde Deluxe wah and a Fulltone Octafuzz (Octavia-style octave-fuzz) that are both just wonderful, and I want several more Fulltone pedals- including this Supa-Trem 2.

The added functions and the somewhat lower price make the Fulltone a good alternative.

Personally, I’m not a fan of MIDI, but I respect its power. So regardless, that’s a great feature.

I’ve always been impressed by how much they can cram into one device...

But, for all it’s flaws, my favorite MFX remains the Digitech iPB-10.

Bobby was also one of the first American artists to perform with a high-quality Japanese Guitar (the Ibanez Artist) at a time when American Guitar companies were pushing back hard against Japanese competition.

Damn, the pedal wizards at EHX have been juiced up the past few years, haven’t they?

I saw that ModRex pedal the other day while waiting for a package pickup at GC, and didn't remember ever seeing it announced. I meant to look it up when I got home, but forgot. Has anyone tried one yet? It's a way cool design for sure!

I have an original Dimension C. Best chorus ever, can get really subtle, not all wobbly, & totally studio quiet. It's basically a pedal version of the legendary rackmount Dimension D studio unit.

I think you're going to love the Carbon Copy. I still have an original in green that I have had for many years and it still works great! Great roadworthy gear... cool

Just a heads up to those interested... go to Komet's facebook page and if you buy the K.O.D.A. pedal in their facebook shop it's on sale for Black Friday week for $199 while supplies last.

Looks to be a very cool pedal. And, while not a pedal, I do believe that I want a Komet Ambicab or Ambicab Jr...
